Educational trip to Syunik’
21th of September is the Independence Day of Armenia. It has become a tradition in our school to celebrate it in the highlands, climbing up the mountains. So, I’m going to write about our trip in details.
This year we chose the mountain Ishkhanac. The big part of our group didn’t climb it, but some students with our history teacher Mr Vardan did. It was really hard, cause the height of the mountain is 3200m. We were back in an hour and were waiting for others to return. Some students got lost somewhere, and others were looking for them. So, after 4 hours, when it started to rain, we found everyone and continued our trip. We went to the store in Goris, bought some food, and went to Mr Vardan’s house in the village Kornidzor. We had supper, played some games and went to sleep.
On the next day, after breakfast, we decided to walk in Goris. Mr Vardan told us many things about the city, and other villages over there. We went to Old Goris, admired the caves and mountains there. We also were in New Goris and the house-museum of Aksel Bakunts. After all these, we went to the village Khndzoresk. We saw the famous bridge, went to the church and the grave of Mkhitar Sparapet. Then it started to rain so we had to go back home. So, our day ended with supper and some games.
On the last day of our trip, we walked over the village Kornidzor, went to their school. So, we said bye to everyone and started our way home. We went to Tatev Monastery. Honestly, the nature was very beautiful, but I expected more. Our next stop was Devil’s bridge, and I loved it so much. Next, we went to Zorats Karer, and after that to the waterfall Shaki. I’ve never been to waterfalls before, and it was one of the most wonderful places I went. That was the end of our trip. Of course, there were very funny moments, especially on our way home. Our group was the best, so I hope we’ll go on such trips more often.
